Typically if your leaking coolant inside the car, it indicates your heater core is split and leaking. Replacing the heater core is quite the job. It requires removal of the dash board and heater box. i replaced one in a 97 Cirrus at work last week and it was a 6 hour job. If your not mechanically inclined i would definitley recomend phoneing around for quotes to local auto repair shops and getting it done profesionally.
Clogged or disconnected drain hose from the heater core box. Or bad/leaking heater core. Does the liquid smell like coolant. If so bad heater core. If not and the water only when you use the AC then it is a drain hose issue. If neither of those pan out you could have a leaky windshield. However 99% of the time a wet passenger floor is caused by a bad heater core or drain hose.
Either your AC drain is clogged or the heater core is failing. Does your heat work well and blow hot air? If so, it's likely a clogged AC drain (although a bad heater core could be the issue). If it does not, your heater core is shot (replacement involves removal of the dashboard).
probably leaking heater core. you may have low coolant level now. the only place water comes in the cabin is for the heater, that has got to be it. the heater core can be bypassed (like my car's is) by simply cutting the hose that leads into the car and leave about a foot, make a big U out of it and plug the other side of the hose into the coolant passage that returns from the heater core and leads into the intake manifold. pretty easy you will need a knife, hose clamps, and common sense. the third one is a little harder to come by! :)
There are 2 places it could be coming from, most likely is a leaking or bad "heater core". If it's not a heater core, it would be "condensation" from your air conditioning system.
Check your coolant first. If it's low, your heater core is leaking the coolant inside the vehicle. If you don't repair this problem it can lead to severe engine damage.
If it's not the heater core, the condensation buildup from your air conditioner is not properly draining outside the vehicle. Could be as simple as a clogged, or damaged drain hose.
There may be a clogg in the drain for your air condition. Or the drain for the water coming off of the windshield (on the bottom where the wiper blades are, may be clogged with leaves or debris. To check take a hose or alot of water and pour on windshield then look to see if it drips inside on the driver floor. To check if its an Ac drain leak turn AC on and run for a while and check to see if the mat is wet or water is dripping on floor mat. Good Luck
water leaking to the flooring means two things, you could have a heater core leak or a clogged ac drain.
first, if it is a heater , you will notice the the wter could be warm and may have color either brown or greenish or yelowish. you may need an expert to repair the heater core and be warned that you may loose all your water in your radiator that would lead to engine breake down.
next, if it is cold and colorless, then it could just be coming fom your evaporator which is located underneath the glove compartment under the dash. you may unclogged the drain hose from the engine compartment. look for a small hose that comes out of the firewall located at the bottom part of the firewall and clean it with anything that could be inserted in it.. a small thin rod would do the trick.. you would notice the water flow like a fall once the clogged has been removed.
